  • KCIRT TAH:  To succeed in the fight and break through the barrier, you must use Kung Lao and perform fatality.

  • Another Test Subject:  Use Shang Tsung and execute his second finishing move on Kitana to open the barrier. 
  • Brutal Ways: To open the barricade, simply use brutality on the Reptile, and the barrier will be opened. However, if the barrier doesn’t open for you, it could be a glitch, so you can use Havik and perform his fatality, as it might open the barrier for you.

  • DEDAERHT:   Use Ashrah’s second fatality on Baraka to open the barrier.
  • Flipping Out: The Flipping Out Klue refers to your fighting stance, so to break the barrier, you will have to switch your stance around 30 times during the fight.

  • AMNISLTA4: The node can be found almost at the end of the festival stage. The clue AMNISLTA4 translates to TALISMAN 4. So, equip a Talisman with four gem slots and use it four times against your fight with Reiko.
  • Toasty!!!: The Toasty refers to the Fatality of the Kameo Version of Scorpion. So equip him as your Kameo and use his fatality on Havik to unlock the barrier.

  • ERTECA AOSCH: It is an anagram that refers to CREATE CHAOS, and it’s arguably referring to Havik. Choose Havik to use his fatality on Raiden, and the barrier will be unlocked.
  • Nomed Renni: The Clue Nomed Renni is another backward clue that translates to Inner Demon. It refers to the fatality of Sareena, so equip her as your Kameo and perform her fatality on Geras.
  • QUACKX10: It is the most hilarious clue out of all, as it refers to taunting ten times during your fight with Liu Kang. Even if the taunt is interrupted, it doesn’t matter, as the barrier will still break.
